I've been searching around trying to find a suitable accordian type gaitor to go between the a-post and door to allow a neat wiring feed into the door for speaker/future electric window installation during my rebuild.

 

Has anyone got a link to a suitable part or know of a suitable source for these?

 

Thanks

 

Ray

A lot of people use Metro tailgate rubbers but these are getting a bit thin on the ground. I used these from eBay.

I just run them, speakers and central locking, fabric tape wrapped through grommets. I, previously, had sleeving but it began to get brittle and split in the colder weather. Using different heights, on frame and door, works best, IMO.

You can use a vauxhall Corsa C or ford fiesta Tailgate or front door rubber as theyll do the same

Going to use some off a Subaru Justy, but that's just cause I have one laying around being striped... 😉
They have oval shape holes, so will need a little more fabrication but the car is in pieces anyway.
For a built car I would go with round ones as it is easyer.

Edit: tailgate ones...
